  "One person alone cannot push an elephant." Tune in to PBS tonight at 10 pm for the broadcast premiere of "Pushing the Elephant," a powerful new documentary about Rose Mapendo, a Congolese Tutsi, a mother of ten, a victim of genocidal violence and an activist for peace and reconciliation.   Ten years ago, Rose Mapendo, her husband, and her children were arrested by the Congolese government and held in a death camp, as the ethnic conflict that ravaged Rwanda spilled over into the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Thinking about getting involved with a sports star? Author’s and former partners of famous athletes, Sherrie Daly and Rosa Blasi, want you to read their books before dating a sports player. The books “Teed Off” and “Jock Itch” are meant to serve as a cautionary tale for women looking for this type of man. Rosa Blasi considered herself “addicted” to athletes and has been “athlete sober” for close to 3 years now. “Jock Itch” tells of her relationships with various sports stars, and the trials of each relationship.

Our latest cover girl, the lovely Liv Tyler, made the scene last Monday for the premiere of the dark and absurd comedy SUPER, along with her pops, and co-stars Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page. SUPER is yet another take on the masked super hero genre ala Kick Ass or Scott Pilgrim vs. the world. In SUPER, Liv plays an addict that succumbs to an evil drug dealer, played hilariously by Kevin Bacon (he is exceptionally sleazy and awesome in this role) while her ex, schlumpy husband Frank (Wilson), under the guise of his alter ego, the Crimson Bolt, tries to save her.

  Last night I discovered “The Women of Playboy”, a tumblr devoted to models featured in the magazine from the late fifties up to the nineties. I couldn’t stop looking at the playmates—I was up until 2am. What kept me up weren’t just the naked ladies, but the fact that the women looked real. All the girls were natural; none had breast implants or zero pubic hair. They looked like us. What really kept me up was the monster change in the standard of beauty over the past 40 years.

It’s officially been 30 years since the release of Beauty and the Beat, a double platinum, beloved Go-Go’s debut that introduced the world songs like “Our Lips Are Sealed” and “We Got the Beat.” Get ready for a slew of Go-Go’s awesomeness in celebration, including a Ladies Gone Wild national U.S.

On Saturday morning, a woman named Eman al-Obeidy broke into the Libyan hotel reserved for members of the press  to tell journalists that she had been raped by members of Quaddafi’s militia. The journalists rushed to al-Obeidy, trying to interview, photograph, and eventually protect her. The scene quickly turned into a mini-war with al-Obeidy at the center. The waiters of the hotel, who are actually part of Quaddafi’s security, grabbed knives from the table and attacked the woman.

A baby cheetah was born at the Jacksonville Zoo, but started losing weight soon after birth.  The cub’s mother was too old to produce breast milk and therefore unable to feed it. Zookeepers sent the little cheetah to Busch Gardens, where it is currently receiving 24-hour care. When it is grows old enough, the cub will join a group of cheetahs in the new park habitat. There are only about 12,400 cheetahs left in the wild. This cub, born in captivity is quite possibly the cutest thing I have ever seen on camera. Listen to it chirp!   [video:http://www.youtube.

Well, this is certainly interesting! COUGARED.COM!? Who knew? I didn’t. Anyway, it has been brought to my attention that Cougared.com ran a survey in the beginning of 2011 asking the “Cubs” (men who love Cougars) what they think about the phenomenon of Cougar dating. 250 Cougar-hungry Cubs were interviewed, 58% American, 8% British, 5% Canadian, and the remaining from all over the world. So here it is: “The Cub Report: Dating Cougars in 2011,” from the most loyal members of the dating site Cougared.com, complete with charts and pie graphs.
